Abstract

A 44 - year -old man presented with generalised progressive lax skin of 14 years duration associated with dysphagia, joint pains and hoarseness of voice. Examination revealed "blood hound" like facies, lox skin with loss of elasticity, dilated tortuous superficial vessels over extremities and back. Systemic involvement noted were oesophageal and pharyngeal diverticuli, inguinal hernia and dermatochalasis. Skin biopsy using Verhoeff Van Gieson's stain was suggestive of cutis laxa.
